Good To Know
I thought it will be a boring trip but it turned out to be a well spent day of my family to a very educational trip on my hubby's birthday. It's been a long wish of my better half to go to NASA. He was so excited and happy about the trip. We enjoyed learning about NASA and its exploration history. There's a shuttle bus to take for a sight seeing tour with a tour guide/driver to tell you about the structures and buildings. Then you will be dropped off KSC visitor complex for a walk tour to see ATLANTIS, NASA's last and final orbiter and contingency mission of the Space Shuttle Program. It's been an honor to know the brave and dedicated astronauts and people behind the trials and successful flights. The literatures and books are not really enough to learn about NASA unless you come and see personally what the shuttles really look like. It was an amazing experience forever will remain in our hearts. Food is also available in the complex.
We always enoy our visits to the Kennedy Space Center. The addition of the Atlantis Space Shuttle is terrific. They get an A plus for their efforts. It is worth going just to see that. If you only have a few hours they have a 3:30 to 6:00 pm discount ticket for 31.95. We had enough time to see a imax movie and tour tje Atlantis exhibit. Also they stop charging for parking at 330. Highly recommended.
We bought annual passes to go to the center on multiple days. There was too much to see. We timed out trip the week of a rocket launch and bought tickets to see a rocket launch, which was amazing. We bought tickets for the control center tour which was excellent. It drove us next to the launch pads (which are actively used by commercial companies) and the shuttle crawler, and we went into the vehicle assembly building into one of the launch control rooms used by the shuttle program. Amazing. The IMAX shows were good, and the Saturn V and Atlantis shuttle exhibits were outstanding. It was hard to believe I was looking at and walking around one of the actual space shuttles. WOW!
My wife and I love visiting the KSC. We recently bought an annual pass which let us park for free as well as provided discounts on everything that we purchased included food. While we were only in the area for a few weeks (snowbirds), we nonetheless visited the Kennedy three different times. On two of those occasions, we took friends with us. They were able to share in our annual pass discounts. They loved the place as well. The pass is a real bargain, if you intend to visit more than once. The things that we enjoyed the most include: The IMax movie on the Hubble telescope. A 40 minute presentation that will leave you speechless at times. Lunch with an Astronaut . Good meal; wonderful and inspiring visit with an actual space traveler. Great for kids. An encounter with an astronaut. Listen to an astronaut give a talk and then get his/her autograph. The rocket garden The Saturn rocket display along with the priceless treasures area. A must see. The Atlantis display and flight simulators. There is more; much more. This is a patriotic headtrip. A walk down memory lane. And a spiritual experience all rolled into one. Go, then go again. You can't see it all in a day. Go slow. Enjoy. God bless the USA!
